Homosexuals worse than terrorists? [Mar. 11th, 2008|12:34 pm]


[Tags|, , , ]


So I'm sure at least some of you have heard about Oklahoma Representative Sally Kern's remarks about homosexuals being worse than terrorists and "the death knell of this nation."

Really, Mrs. Kern? Worse than terrorists?

I fail to see how my sleeping with another woman (a transgender woman at that! gasp!) is equivalent to--oh wait, no, she said worse than--flying planes into buildings and killing thousands of people. How is my love for another woman worse than strapping a bomb on my chest and blowing up Iraqi civilians along with United States soldiers? I'd really like an explanation of how my private love for my partner hurts anybody else. I'm waiting Mrs. Kern.

Still waiting.

You know, what Sally? When you're okay with someone telling you that your love for your husband (I'm assuming she's married, gotta live that good ol' tighty-righty life) is worse than murder, then I'll tell you that what you've said is not hate speech.
